Proteome IDi <p>The proteome identifier (UPID) is the unique identifier assigned to the set of proteins that constitute the <a href="http://www.uniprot.org/manual/proteomes_manual">proteome</a>. It consists of the characters ‘UP’ followed by 9 digits, is stable across releases and can therefore be used to cite a UniProt proteome.<p><a href='/help/proteome_id' target='_top'>More...</a></p>UP000008143

The western or tropical clawed frog is a frog belonging to the Pipidae family. This frog plays an invaluable role in investigation of embryo development and various cellular processes such as the cell cycle, chromosome replication, chromatin and nucleosome assembly. Recently Xenopus tropicalis has attracted increased attention as a model for developmental biology because it has a small diploid genome, unlike the African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) and other species in this genus.

The western clawed frog genome has 10 chromosomes containing 1.7 Gb with 20,000 protein-coding genes. The reference proteome is derived from the genome sequence published in 2010.
